We went with a large family group ages 14 - 90. The food was excellent and the service - wow - our server had just the right touch - helpful, funny, but not intrusive. The feel is old-style "family Italian" but the food was much more sophisticated and so well-prepared. We had a wonderful evening.

This is the best Italian food we have had in quite some time. You won't find your standard plate of spaghetti and meatballs here. The menu is full of unusual, authentic Italian dishes, more like what you would find in Italy. My wife and I shared three half-orders of different dishes --- eggplant, and two pasta dishes. The eggplant was deliciously crispy, and the pasta tasted home-made and had "guanciale" bacon and superb seasonings. The herb bread with olive oil were also excellent, as were the gourmet salad greens. The price was also quite reasonable -- $55 (before tip) for the meals and 2 glasses of fine Montepulciano d'Abruzzo wine. I highly recommend this place for Italian food.
